Excess Of Everything Is Bad - Short Story


Today Sunny's mother baked a cake. She is very good at making cakes and this one is Sunny's favorite. It has lot of dry fruits like walnut, almonds and cashew nuts. Sunny loves to eat this cake. Mommy gave him a big piece of cake to eat. He enjoyed it and then asked for more. Mommy gave him another piece  and said, "This is enough for now, you can eat more after the dinner because this is too heavy so you should not eat too much at a time". She put the cake in the refrigerator. 
" Sunny, I am going to neighbor's house, will be back in half an hour. Close the door.", said Mommy. " O.k. Mommy, bye!", Sunny said. Mommy went and Sunny started watching T.V. but he wasn't enjoying it. He was just thinking about the delicious cake Mommy made. He could not resist eating more of it himself. He went into the kitchen and opened the fridge, took out the cake and started eating eagerly. He ate more than half of it and when he got tired of eating, put it back into the fridge. 

Mommy came back, Sunny did not show that he had eaten so much cake. After sometime his stomach started aching badly. He started crying, Mommy asked him, " What happened Sunny? Why are you crying?". " My stomach is aching Mommy, I ate too much cake. Please do something!" , said Sunny. " Oh my God! Sunny I told you that the cake is too heavy to digest  but you did not listen to me", Mommy said. Sunny was continuously crying, holding his stomach. Poor Mommy got so worried and immediately called her family doctor. Sunny's condition was getting worse.

 At last doctor came, and treated Sunny, he was also given an injection. Sunny hated injections but what could he do now? 
Doctor warned him not to eat too much again! Sunny promised to do so because he had seen the result of over eating.

      Yes you are right! It is one of the diseases of the time and yes, children love sweets. Sweets attract them, like a magnet attracts magnetic substances.
      Ha ha ha I also hate needles! ;)

      I feel I would have enjoyed the story if the language was slightly more mature. The writing is quite childish, but the moral is delivered.
